We met at HUEL HQ today and worked through a lot of things.

OT: Great Charles Barkley friendship story

OT: Great Charles Barkley friendship story

Submitted by Hotel Putingrad on December 15th, 2018 at 12:50 PM

As many of you know, I'm a pretty sentimental guy. This story appeared in my TL late last night, and I thought it was too heartwarming not to share. 

This is the story of Charles Barkley and an Iowa scientist, as told by the latter's daughter. Remember, no man is a failure who has friends...

Can we remove the reply button when trying to comment on a post? I don't know how many times I have hit reply instead of save only to have everything I typed deleted and then I have to start over. Super frustrating and I usually end up not commenting at all.

Wondering how many other people have this issue.

OT: Slow Morning Question: Best Way to Locate Rare Beer?

Submitted by WichitanWolverine on December 6th, 2018 at 9:47 AM

Slow morning so I thought I'd seek out some help. Long story short I'm looking to find some Pliny the Elder in the Denver area (via store, not restaurant). I have the Untappd and Taphunter apps but feel like it's still a crap shoot trying to locate some.

Does anyone have any better suggestions on how to find rare beers?

Presumably a byproduct of the Nassar scandal and all the other messes going on there.

This article has a box showing applications to all Big Ten schools.  I didn't realize Michigan received more applications than any other school in the conference - and that number jumped almost 10% in the past year. 65,684 high school seniors hope to become Wolverines this year.

UM Glee Club vanquishes OSU

UM Glee Club vanquishes OSU

Over the past several weeks, the Michigan Men's Glee Club and the Ohio State Men's Glee Club have competed in a canned food drive. Our glee club paired with Food Gatherers to raise nearly $6000 for this cause. In fact, both glee clubs combined to raise over $8,000 in addition to more than 400 cans. However, throughout the competition, the Michigan Men's Glee Club raised the equivalent of 11,229 cans, surpassing OSU's total of 6,660 cans. As a reward for our hard work, the OSU glee club sent us a unique video of their club singing the greatest fight song in the country, the Victors!

So I tried logging in to MGoBlog on a school computer a few minutes ago and although I had typed in the right password, I got an error message: "Too many failed login attempts from your IP address. This IP address is temporarily blocked. Try again or request a new password."

So I requested a new password. I get an email on my phone and then change my password from  my phone. I then try to login on the computer, and it gives me the same error.

So I pull out my laptop, and I see that it logged me out. I try to login, and it gives me the same error! What's the deal?

Sort of OT: Michigan-related baby names

Sort of OT: Michigan-related baby names

Submitted by evenyoubrutus on November 15th, 2018 at 7:00 PM

Mgobrethren, I need your help. My wife has carried three children, and naming each of them was more difficult than the last. She is now carrying children numbers 4 & 5. They are a boy and a girl, and are due in January. We are really struggling to come up with names, which is stressful but also a great opportunity. I would really like some input on Michigan related names. Here's the catch: it has to be subtle. Woodson is too obvious. I suggested Fielding and she was "meh" on that idea.

Please help. The class of 2037 is counting on you.
